Private transfer to Rincón de la Vieja
Wildlife, rivers, waterfalls, and mud baths are just the tip of the volcano when it comes to the natural wonders of Rincón de la Vieja National Park. The national park’s 34,800 acres are home to two peaks, the most impressive being Rincón de la Vieja at 1,895 meters (6,254 feet), which is often enveloped in clouds. Expect to see monkeys, sloths, and birds in a single day’s exploration. To get a taste of the area, there are plenty of activities that blend nature and adventure, like horseback riding, river rafting, zip lining, and hiking on a network of trails that set off from the Santa María ranger station and wind past hot springs, mud baths, and waterfalls. Lathering up with the volcanic mud softens the skin and detoxifies the body, and it makes for a fun photo op. Exhaling geothermal energy, the park bubbles with multihued fumaroles, tepid springs and steaming and flatulent mud pots. All of these can be visited on foot via well-maintained trails.
***Note that the Rincón de la Vieja National Park is closed on Mondays.
